NEW YORK –– The family of a former construction worker has been awarded $15 million at the conclusion of a trial in which the plaintiffs presented evidence that Kaiser Gypsum had failed to protect the decedent from asbestos-related dangers associated with its joint compound products.

The New York Supreme Court for New York County jury reached the verdict on July 15 after a three-week trial and forty-five minutes of deliberations. Hon. Suzanne Adams presided over the trial.
